Let the games begin… Our first glance at the Biennale! While things are still being built up we visited KW in Augusstrasse (highly recommended if you are politically active or at least pretend to be), Elisabethskirche in Invalidenstrasse (highly recommended if you are a child or like sketching and scribbling), Mehdi Chouakri also in Invalidenstrasse (highly recommended if you love geometrical shapes). At the Deutsche Guggenheim Roman Ondak took us on a little trip to italy (highly recommended if you ever dreamt of walking on a plane wing), while at Schinkel Pavillion Cerith Wyn Evans made plants turn (highly recommended only if you have already really done and seen everything else there is to do and see).
We ended our day drinking mango Margaritas at St.Oberholz for the launch of Momentum Worldwide’s new project Sky Screen: a unique and monthly changing program of international video art brought into Berlin’s skyline (at Rosenthalerplatz opposite St.Oberholz) every night from 22pm-4am.
